Election Day Chaos By Design -- King GW

For those of us who have monitored the electronic voting machine debates for the past two years, it is not a suprise that the news media is just now paying attention to the problem. It's too late to do anything about it. The chaos that will occur on election day is chaos by design. This was no accident. It has been a disaster in the making for several years and when the activists were shouting from the roof tops about it two years ago, the reaction by the public and public official was either, "yawn... oh really, that's interesting, now go away, I have work to do." Or like my husband many thought people who were expressing concerns were "a little to extreme in their views." Nope, just like the issue of terrorism that we knew about for decades and did nothing about it until after the fact, so goes the election process. Unfortunately for our democracy, it may be too late to preserve our democracy, "after the fact."
